Interview: Daan Gortner from GaiaNet
In this one hour interview, Daan shares his journey and the creation of GaiaNet. His and his wife's dream of over 100 cities of light is being brought to life slowly. Daan explains GaiaNet and how it works to develop the quality of relationships need to attain that dream. I came away very impressed with the effort they have put into their governance structure. I believe that this provides a model for others attempting a more egalitarian governance approach. Taking the time to develop relationships is new to most of us, and it presents a big hurdle to many.
This interview was held as part of the offerings to The Coming Home Project network - join us.

Ethics of Living
Planetary consciousness is calling forth a new ethic. Learning how to be ethical in this new time of Earth consciousness, and working to keep life thriving, requires some change. Here are a few thoughts and actual steps to take that will move us in the right direction.

Whoopie! Makin' Change!
The Earth is ALIVE and that means EVERYTHING changes. Here are stories of some of the surprising changes that are happening all around us. If plants, sea lions and crickets change - FAST, what does that mean for us?

Should Humanity Be Saved?
Should humanity be saved? Why or why not. Do we have any redeeming qualities? How does Regenerative Leadership fit in?
What do you feel when you hear that question? Does it raise survival concerns for your own life or does it make you wonder about our species, or both? Think, for a moment, and see if you can come up with reasons why our species deserves to continue.

Listen Up Buttercup - The Plan, Part One
What can Regenerative Leaders DO? Here are first steps; simple, not easy things to do to directly address climate change AND to help prepare for the coming warming times. YOU can make a difference and address floods, fire and help the Earth keep life alive - all at the same time - and right where you live. I double dare you to get engaged. Put your actions below.

What is Regenerative Leadership? How is it different, and why does that matter? These and other questions are answered, and an invitation to become a Regenerative Leader is offered.
Evolution is SO exciting! When you realize what actually happens to make evolution possible, it's mind-blowing. Just as important is the question in front of us - will WE evolve? What does that mean of us and for the planet?
Please, join the Coming Home Project and add your voice and your wisdom as we enter this transformation together: https://community.living-regeneratively.world
Let's revisit a very old story and if it can shed light on where we are now. Then, let's retell it in such a way that new insights arise that will be helpful as we traverse this liminal time.
Join us in community as we start a new Earth Ethics series of classes this August, 2023 at the Coming Home Project. Learning to live regeneratively, in sync with the planet, takes time, so start now and get coached! Sign up on my website Bridge To Partnership
Nature's Ethics for the Coming Crisis
Why talk about ethics during a time of crisis? When we speak of values - whose values are we talking about? If the ethics we espouse and the values we claim aren't working (given the situation we are in) then what? Maybe nature has the answer...

What is LIFE? What does life have to do with the situation we are in? How do we listen to the Earth, anyway? These questions are answered, and more.
Listen Up Buttercup
Listen up, here is what Mother Gaia is saying, here is what she is trying to get us to hear. What is she saying, how do we hear, and what are we going to do, now that we've heard? This is not rocket science, but it takes will, discipline, and requires a deep commitment. As Meg Wheatly, says - what are we being faithful too?
Buckle Up Buttercup
We all feel angst, anger, sadness at the state of our world. That's not going to get anyone anything! Buckle up buttercup and begin the practices that will really make a difference! Coddling yourself and others, discounting, dismissing, and denying will not generate a future we want to live in. What will? Listen and find out.
Who ARE we? Learn the science that talks autopoiesis, symbiosis. It seems to be true as above, so below. We are mirrors of the greater biome. As we recognize what that means, we can begin to practice for the coming events.
Join the Coming Home Project and learn more. This is a safe space to learn to be who you really are. https://community.living-regeneratively.world.
Here we are, in this liminal time, at a crossroads. Will humanity choose to go up or go down? Will we choose Life or technology? What difference will it make, do you think? In this podcast, I'm asking YOU, the listener, to answer that question for yourself. If you choose LIFE, then join the community of the Third Way and explore together what it means to live regeneratively. You can find the community here: https://community.living-regeneratively.world. If you also choose to join the "Awakening to Gaia's Voice" space, then we can discuss each video there.
Cari Taylor Interview: One Living System
All Actions Create the Conditions that Support Life
This podcast is a discussion about a deeper understanding of the value/pattern, All Actions Create the Conditions that Support Life. The beginning is a story, about Skywoman, as told by Robin Wall Kimmerer, in the magazine Minding Nature.
These values/patterns are from the card deck: Earth Values: The Ethics of Living Regeneratively. You can help make these cards available by contributing to the Indiegogo fund striving to get them printed. Visit: https://igg.me/at/Earth-Values-Cards/x#/ to participate.
What Does Earth Want?
Based on over 20 years of research with scientists, systems thinkers, poets, futurists, indigenous wisdom; these values/patterns seem consistent. These patterns show up as ways in which Gaia ensures Life thrives on this planet. I'm sharing the four intents and the 16 values/patterns with you, but that's not enough. How do you make these yours? How do you begin to live from this framework? I've created a deck of cards to help with remembering focusing, and reflecting on these values so that you can begin to actually live them. The cards are available in digital format on Deckible (Android and IOS) for download. There is also a link on my webstie: https://bridgetopartnership.com/tools/. If you want to help get them printed, then please visit https://Indiegogo.com and search for Earth Values. Your support means a great deal!
How bad is it? This podcast looks at what we currently know about the state of our planet - that's the bad news. I also bring resources and a to-do list. The changes are not going away, but there are things we can and must do to address the new state of our world.
What does autopoiesis tell us about humans? What are we, as humans? How would acting on this new understanding impact how we make our world? Discover the new information science has to tell us about our selves, and think more deeply about what we can do to make the change nature/Gaia, is calling us to.
Autopoiesis - the scientific word for self-making. Discover how fundamental this is to our world and how profoundly it shifts almost everything we know. From quantum physics to biology autopoiesis, self-making, is fundamental to life!
Of course, the Earth's alive - but is she her own being? How would we know she is a being? What difference would it make? How important would that be to us? In this podcast, I explore the answers to these questions, and present a framework to help us humans shift into healing the illusion there is a split between us and nature, and begin to see some of the ways we actively maintain that illusion. Getting un-entangled from that illusion is a huge step in the next stage of our journey to wholeness!
What is Earth Asking?
Consider that the Earth is ALIVE. As a live being, what is she asking? Certainly the changes suggest a conversation, as does the pandemic, but WHAT is she asking? Once we understand the conversation - how will we respond?
